Honors and Acknowledgments
The Birmingham Magazine has honored me as the winner of a popularity contest among Birmingham lawyers as the top immigration attorney in Birmingham. Of course, it is a wonderful thing that others have honored me with their trust, in particular as they have done this now five times, including in 2018 after I moved my residency to Atlanta, GA. All I can aspire to do is to be the best immigration attorney for my clients, but to have the trust and respect of my peers just makes me especially proud.
If you are one of my clients, you probably know that I am originally from Germany and, displaying perhaps some of my German stubbornness, like to handle everything myself. Whether this is the secret to my success or just a quirk of my personality, I'll leave it up to you.
Five is a charm:
My Youtube presence
I have appeared on television several times, mostly in cases when the subject of immigration was in the news headlines. One time I was interviewed on a more general subject, an interview that made its way to Youtube. Here it is
Volunteering in Mediation
Throughout my career, I have been involved in voluntary activities that resulted in letters of support from judges and certificates of achievement. As an example, I would like to list here some documents that I received for participating in the Jefferson County District Court Mediation Program. Mediation is an alternative to lengthy and costly resolutions of disputes by Civil Courts.
